Starting at $5.99$24.99

Let RetroSparX spark your memory of Clint Eastwood running for mayor of Carmel-by-the-Sea, California, with Mayor Clint. Much of the world may have been surprised when one of Hollywood’s most prolific leading men stepped away from the movie set and into the political world. Read about what precipitated this foray into local politics (hint … it involves the perceived evils of ice cream), and about the mark that Mayor Eastwood made during his brief tenure as mayor.

As an added bonus, in Wacky Laws Around the World, discover some of the more truly bizarre laws that are, for better or for worse, still in force!
